Preparations for the NFL Draft continue this week with the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine gets underway this week, and is the next step along the draft evaluation process. Invited prospects will be put through a number of individual drills, and teams will also hold interviews to understand a prospect’s character a little better.
Decisions won’t be confirmed on prospects in Indianapolis this week, but outstanding performances can shoot players up draft boards. Each team already has plenty of tape study on prospects, so a slightly slower 40-yard time than expected might not be as troublesome as it may seem if the prospect has an excellent body of work on tape.
That’s not to say prospects can’t improve their draft stock by posting eye-popping numbers, and there will be players who do just that this week. Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson will be in Indianapolis getting a closer look at players that could potentially suit up in green and gold next season.
Which players should you watch out for this week? Let’s take a look at the prospects that could be of interest to the Packers.
